MS Lending breaks through £200m lending milestone



MS Lending Group, the bridging lender, set up in 2021, has announced it has funded over £200m in loans since the business began 3 years ago.

Its report comes after recently announcing a further funding line extension from Pollen Street Capital.

Established in 2021 in Manchester during the pandemic with just one employee, the business has grown to a team of 19 and counting, focusing on providing innovative products that solve real problems.

CEO & Founder, Michael Stratton said:

“Our pipeline continues to be strong, as our customers are continuing to come back to us with repeat business.

We have seen the business grow month on month, year by year, and this news is testament to the service our team are delivering.

Over 80% of our deals are completed without the need for a full valuation which is why I believe we’re becoming the go-to lender for many customers and brokers.”

By the end of 2025 the bridging lender aims to have lent over £500m, and become the top choice for bridging finance in the UK while continuing to collaborate with borrowers and brokers to ensure positive outcomes for all.

Michael added:

“MS Lending Group was conceived during the COVID-19 pandemic when a lot of lending across the property industry was put on hold.

At the time physical in person valuations were unable to take place, so we launched the business with a No Valuation product utilising valuation software to deliver for clients.

Since then we have relentlessly sought industry feedback, adapting our offering to best serve our customers.

We found a lot of lenders would not lend under £100k and therefore launched no minimum loan size across all our products.

That’s what MS Lending Group is all about, focusing and owning our own lending strategy and ensuring being flexible in our lending as that’s what our customers need”.
